Independent Ceramic Study
Our Ceramics Program provides an enriching and rewarding experience for each student through continued arts education. We believe all-skill-level classes create a supportive atmosphere where students learn from each other. Advanced students are welcome in any class to work on refining and improving their skills. Instructors provide self-paced demos throughout class time and will work with students based on their interests in learning wheel, hand building, sculpture or figurative work. Instructors also provide proper glazing and decoration techniques, and most importantly focus on developing your artistic expression. Students ages 15-17 may register with Arts School permission.
Independent study is available for advanced students that are: completely self-guided, don’t need instruction, or create production work (no more than 8 pieces of the same form). All students (new and current) must notify DAC staff of intent to apply by filling out the application form and signing up for a six-week Dougherty Arts Center class. Students must demonstrate skilled knowledge while taking a six-week session to be considered for approval. Please read studio policies before registering
